Personally I would prefer we don't do the first part. Adding some
arbitrary length of time like this to fix whatever you want invites a
"code-shoving" period where people are encouraged to rush things in to
get them by XYZ date.

This can basically cause a huge destabilization of the codebase, and
its totally unnecessary.

I would prefer we wind down now and do bugs, docs, tests, and
blockers. I don't like official code freezes either, I feel like we
can just work together on this and do what makes sense.
